Back in the Studio. New Year. New Work.

Susan Buret, Untitled(as yet), 2012 from the Inequality Proposition Series, Acrylic on Linen70 cm x 100 cm.

Circumstances largely beyond my control have kept from the studio, and this blog, for most of the latter part of 2011. 
When I returned to the studio I resolved to start blogging again and this raised heaps of questions. 
Should this blog only focus on my work and if so should I include new work which may form part of my next exhibition? If I show most of the work on the blog the exhibition will hold no surprises.
Should I talk about personal matters on a blog which is a professional platform? In my last post I mentioned the fact that personal matters do often, without any conscious decisions, inform the work I make.
The questions still remain unanswered so I am beginning this years blogging with a new work. I have decided to return to the geometric works begun in 2006/7 as part of the in her high heels series. I enjoy  making these works as of resolving the image is very different to the repetitive process of making the collage works.

So glad you are blogging again Susan. I always
looked forward to reading your weekly post. Things and artists that influence your work, seeing works in progress, materials and methods you use etc, all are of interest. Don't feel like you have to share your inner most personal self, perhaps think of sharing the process of how you translate that into your own visual language. :)

Thank for your encouragement Rachael. I'm really looking forward to getting back to regular blogging.

Loving this new look for you. It presents your work beautifully very consistent with flow. Eye catching!I think do what you are comfortable with from blog post to blog post. One day you may feel brave another shy. and so it goes. I feel that blogging still moves me forward both personally and professionally.Look forward to reading more posts from you. Candyxx
